This is a Fender factory left handed Precision Bass, with the neck dating to May 1963, Very clean condition, all original except for a late 60s(Tail Logo) Fender case.
The bass has been inspected and setup by Scott Freilich of Top Shelf Music, who is the most qualified person in the world to check out a vintage bass. Scott has had an authorized Fender repair center since 1979, has worked on hundreds of vintage Fender basses over the years, has a collection of vintage basses, and is also a tremendous professional bass player.
The bass has some typical nicks and dings for an instrument over 50 years of age, with 1 small area between the covers worn to the wood, some worming on the back, and minor fret wear on the 1st three frets. The 3-color sunburst is vibrant, tortoise shell pickguard is crack-free, headstock logo is perfect, back of neck has very little wear, the fretboard is Dark Brazilian Rosewood with no gouges or grooves. All electronics and internal characteristics are perfect, with solder joints untouched.
• Neck Plate: L41xxx
• Neck Stamp: 5MAY63C
• Pots: 304-6440
The bass is perfectly set-up and sounds great with a rich tone. The neck is wide, flat, and comfortable. The neck is a “C” width of 1 3/4 at the nut, which is more comfortable to play than a comparable Jazz Bass with its “A” width of 1 1/2.
This is a really nice example of a left handed Pre-CBS Fender bass – and the lefty basses are much harder to find than the guitars!
